With The GoCube, You Can Just Chew Your Coffee

gocube-1

Running late and don’t have time to wait for your scalding coffee to cool down? Just have a GoCube. It’s a chewable gummy cube that packs the equivalent amount of caffeine as half a cup of coffee.

GO CUBES are made with real cold-brew coffee and come in 3 delicious flavors: Pure Drip, Mocha, and Latte. (Note that each package of GO CUBES contains a random assortment of all 3.)

We are working directly with one of the largest and most reputable confectionary factories in the USA to produce GO CUBES. We’ve been through over 20 rounds of testing to pinpoint the exact right taste and mouthfeel profile, and have landed on something that has unanimous approval from the team.

The Go Cubes are developed with cognitive performance in mind, and as such don’t only pack caffeine: “We’ve crammed in a full nootropic stack in each GO CUBE. B complex (accelerates metabolism), L-Theanine (an amino acid found in green tea), and other compounds that stack well with caffeine.”

As far as costs are concerned, one of the packs the company offers contains 40 cubes for $50, which works out to $1.25 per cube, or about half the price of a fully equipped Starbucks creation. The IndoeGogo campaign is fully funded, so you can go on and place your order now.

Meater Is The World’s First Truly Wireless Meat Thermometer

meater-8

You know, a well-done steak is also known as “overpriced beef jerky”; anything above medium-rare is just a travesty. Now, it’s true that you can avoid ruining a beautiful cut with an array of tools: experience as a cook, using fancy techniques like sous-vide cooking, or getting a meat thermometer. Bringing some innovation to the field of thermometers, Meater bills itself as “The World’s First Truly Wireless Meat Thermometer”, and has enough features to make its purchase palatable. Each thermometer connects to your smartphone and instantly transmits the internal temperature of the protein it’s inserted into. Simply tell the app what you’re cooking, and as soon as it’s reached its desired internal temperature, you’ll get a notification. Gone are the days where you have to stay by your food’s side, obsessing over whether it’s ready, freeing you to entertain your guests or prepare some other dish.

The electronics won’t overheat since they’re insulated by the surrounding meat, so you can safely use the probe in the oven or on a grill. The external probe even monitors the ambient temperature, perfect for smoking or long BBQ roasts where maintaining the external cooking temperature is extremely important.

It’ll cost you a $59 pledge for 1 Meater probe and its charger, or $148 for the Meater Block (which provides multi-storage for the probe, Wifi range extension, as well as a display) and two probes.

We pour the maple bacon flavor on our slow smoked beans like syrup, letting them soak up all the wonderful bacon goodness. Each cup will taste sweet, savory, and delicious without all the fat and grease. Your entire kitchen, office, or café will smell like a Sunday breakfast.

Caffeinated Peanut Butter, For That Double Morning Dose

two_jars

Many people start their days with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Ok, mostly kids, sure, but some grown up kids as well. These people might be interested in the Caffeinated Peanut Butter by a Massachusetts-based company called Steem. Each 2-tablespoon serving of the product contains as much pick-me-up as a regular cup of coffee, and the entire mix is made from all-natural ingredients: green-coffee extract, salt, peanuts, peanut oil and agave nectar for a little extra sweetness.

It’s available from a variety of retailers around the Boston area, or online, for $5 a jar.

OneLid Is A Lid For All Your Pots

onelid-universal-cooking-pan-lid-1

Usually when you get a pot, you have to keep track of its lid forever because no other one will fit. And admit it: you’ve used a large plate instead of the lid more than once because you couldn’t find it, haven’t you? With OneLid, you’ll just have to keep track of one, for any pots up to 22cm (8.6 in.) in diameter. It fits any pot because the underside is convex and is made of silicone with a Nylon core. It’ll sit and partially seal any sized pot and will redirect boiling water back into the mix. Special grooves allow for just the right amount of steam to escape and prevent a boil-over, while they also do double-duty as a strainer. The silicone construction means you won’t be hearing any metal-on-metal clangs. The best part is you’ll only have to pledge $30 to secure your own, with shipping in February 2016.

Because Why Not: General Mills Is Giving Away A Selfie Spoon

selfie-spoon

Who hasn’t had a hearty bowl of cereal and thought “Gee, I sure wish I could take a selfie with this spoon, right now.”? Someone at General Mills has, this much we’re sure of, because it seems the company is giving away a selfie stick spoon as a promotional item for their Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals. It’s a legit selfie stick that extends to 30 inches, and uses Bluetooth to trigger your camera… only at the other end of it there’s a spoon. The idea, we imagine, is to make it easier to take pictures of yourself while gobbling down some of their delicious cinnamon-y cereal. They even suggest a hashtag: #selfiespoon.

The spoon itself is free to US residents (you only have to pay for shipping) but it’s currently out of stock. We’re not sure if that’s because they’re understocked, or because there’s an actual market for this. However we suspect the folks at General Mills are aware of how ridiculous this is, since one of the items on their descriptions is “Really a Thing!”. Yes… it’s really a thing.

This Needs To Be Made: Finger Cookies

1442015847-0

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: these don’t actually exist. Or at the very least, they can’t be bought right now. The Finger Cookies are a design by Paolo Ulian, and they allow you to do pretty much what the picture already tells you. You put the thimble-shaped cookies over your fingers and dip them in any delicious liquid you want. Rinse and repeat. It’s a genius idea, and one that really shouldn’t be too hard to bring to market. Now… let’s get someone on this case, shall we?

Taco Bell Testing Taco Shell Made From Crispy Chicken

taco_bell_chicken_taco_shell_thumb1

Don’t go looking for it at your local Taco Bell just yet, unless you live in Bakersfield and Lost Hills, California. That’s where a Reddit user spotted the above. It’s called Naked Crispy Chicken Taco, and it’s a taco with a shell made of crispy white meat chicken. The other ingredients include lettuce, cheese, tomato and avocado ranch sauce, so… no extra meat. But who cares? It’s $2.99 for one, to $4.99 in a combo. We don’t know whether the chain will expand the offering statewide, but we sure hope so. We suspect that some people in Colorado might be down.

Imperial Spherificator Turns Almost Any Food Into Edible Pearls

imperial-spherificator-1

You might have heard of Spherification. It’s a trend among food lovers that involves turning common ingredients into caviar-like pearls of flavour. The process usually revolves around turning the food into mush, mixing it with Alginate (a seaweed extract), putting it into a syringe and injecting little droplets into a mixture of water and calcium chloride to create the pearls. You can then use these to flavour and accompany your foods while elevating your presentation to that of an actual chef. Well, with the Imperial Spherificator, you can do all this more easily. The device handles all the aspects of spherification for you, so that what you’re left after each batch is between 200 and 250 pearls to use in your cooking. It comes with a recipe booklet and clear instructions on how to achieve the best results each time.

It’s still doing the Kickstarter dance, so it’ll cost you a $125 pledge to own one. It comes with 100g of Alginate and 100g of Calcium Chloride, the two key ingredients.
